Storyline

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue, the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns. As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Trivia

As a teenager, Antoine Fuqua was inspired to be a filmmaker after watching two films, The Magnificent Seven (1960) and Scarface (1983). He once said that he would lobby to do a remake of these films if there would be a plan to do so. Fortunately, he got his chance; producer Roger Birnbaum wanted to do a remake after leaving his position as co-chairman of MGM, saying the original film and its characters underline the theme of mortality, a theme that he holds after surviving a gastrointestinal tumor.

One Hell of a Ride
19 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally another great western movie!

To be sure, all the western clichés are found in this movie; and I don't have a problem with that! One of the things I liked best about this western was the pacing, sometimes I find westerns to be a little too slow (for my personal taste - subjective, I know) but I felt this movie nailed it, even with a run time a little over 2 hours.

The action scenes are great, very well done. The casting and acting was great - Denzel does a great job as the leader of this rag tag group of guys. Pratt, of course, nails the comedic relief role.

The movie carried a surprising amount of "heart" throughout it all the way to the end.

Here is the bottom line: Yes, this movie is worth your hard earned money to go see in the theater.
